Established in 2005, the Wheatland Fire Authority is a Joint Powers Agency made up of the City of Wheatland and the Plumas Brophy Fire Protection District. The makeup of the Authority Board consists of 2 members of the Wheatland City Council and 2 members of the Plumas Brophy Board. Because of growth in the region and recent passage of a fire assessment in the JPA area, the Board has initiated the transition from an all volunteer fire force to a combined full time and volunteer force. We have 3 paid full time personnel and 24 volunteers.
